    You know the drill. Let's see your creativity and post up your screenshots!

    There are a couple of ways to take screenshots on your Galaxy S4:

    Method 1:

    1. Place the palm of your hand on the screen of S4. Make sure the phone is unlocked, because it won’t work on the locked screen.

    2. Swipe your hand across the screen in either direction, left or right. You should hear a camera shutter sound along with a notification appearing on screen saying “copied to clipboard”. You can find the screenshot in your photo Gallery.

    Before taking screenshot with this method, make sure the “Palm motion” option is turned on. To on/off this option, go to Settings -> Motions and gestures -> Palm motion, you can enable or disable the “Palm motion” option from here.



    Method 2:

    Another way to capture screenshot on the S4: simply press power and home button at the same time. Hold both the buttons at same time till you hear the camera shutter sound.

    Wicked, what launcher are you using? Love the clean look. I've been considering changing up my layout considerably - I've pretty much used the same organization since my D1 days, and I already got in the habit of doing it with my S4.

    And, while I'm at it with the question, any tips on getting the swipe method for screenshots to actually work? I've got everything turned on, but can't even get it to work in the "try it" mode.

    I'm using Nova Launcher Prime. I haven't used the swipe method. I just use power + home button to take my screenshots. ;)

    I'd be interested to see if anyone can actually get it to work, haha.

    I've been trying out the smart features a bit more today and getting some fairly impressive results. When they work, they really work. When they don't, well, it's rather frustrating.

    I really love the eye tracking stuff, but I absolutely hate the fact that it keeps that eye icon in your notification bar. That thing is cluttered enough already. I wish there was a way to keep the features activated, but get rid of the indicator. I also noticed there's no WiFi toggle anywhere - you have to go into settings. Seems like it might be a Verizon thing, which is strange.

    Don't know if it is different on the S4 from how it is on the Note 2, but for the longest time I couldn't figure out the "hand-swipe to screenshot" motion either. That is until I figured out that you need to have the edge of your hand touching the screen when you swipe.

    Hah, that's precisely it! Takes a couple of times to get right, because if you touch too much, it obviously just swipes your screen. Works flawlessly once you figure it out, though. Thanks!
